KLLM

I try to stay out of the nonsense of some of these people but there are times I can't keep my big mouth shut. Those of you and you know whom Im speaking of. If you would take the time to listen to the very generous advise here you will learn how to be a safe and prductive driver. These wonderful folks here are in the field working the industry. Take head of their of advise and learn. My first time around as an OTR flatbed driver sites like this weren't around. 2500 miles with a trainer final test drive with safety and you were on your own and you either sink or swim. So stop being an argumentive pain in the ..... Get off your tail and go to work. Until you are actually working as a driver you dont know your butt from a hole in the ground.

Old School. I salute you Sir

I stumbled upon your blog yesterday and I couldn't put it down til I read all of your blogs. I greatly admire your family and Christian values as well as your work ethics. I have learned so much in reading your postings as well as identifying mistakes I made in my 1st time in this industry. I already feel I owe you a great debt of gratitude for I have know doubt I will be a much better driver this time around. I agree with Brett, you should right a book. Your blogs are very elegant, informative, and articulate. Your blogs should be required reading for anyone thinking about entering into this industry. I do my best to always let God lead me and show me way and He certainly blessed me with your blogs. I do sincerely hope our path's cross someday. Stay safe in your travels as I will always be grateful and will keep you and yours in my prayers.

While it has been a lifetime ago, when I was a hotshot O/O the coops on the northern side (I20) you had to go in and they would waive you through. Now on the southern side (I10) they would call me in check my insurance, authority and logbook.

I have yet another question - blood glucose requirements in passing a DOT physical?

Rick, Thank you so much for your reply. My son informed me today that he was diagnosed with type II diabetes. It kind of raised concerns about myself. I stopped by my local Walmart Pharmacy on my way home this evening and got a free screening. Blood flash was 89 and A1c 5.3.
